Wow Glenn! What did you use to polish up the metal parts? I don't see one speck of rust? Was the polishing done by hand or did you use some kind of electric buffer? Really nice job cleaning up that Sphinx!
Have you all gone to the photo shop to see Glenn's Sphinx?
[QUOTE=Mizkaki;5079417]I think the 16x1 will be too long. I need to check my needle list/ book first to be sure.
Cathy, I will be waiting to hear what your learn about needle size and any little tidbits you pick up about my toy Damascus when you get home this weekend!
Ok, I brought my Minnesota H in to clean her up. The first time I tried to pick up the shuttle thread, she picked it up right off the bat - but the thread broke immediately. I adjusted the tension slightly and re-threaded the shuttle - now I can't get her to pick up the shuttle thread. I am not sure this machine is even threaded correctly, but it looks very straightforward - at least the threading path does. I don't have a manual, nor a machine that threads exactly like the Minnesota H. Do any of you have a manual you can scan? I only need the thread path. If so could you post a photo of that page here?
